Re: Kart Vader

How much fun would that be? The cart turns on a dime! Cops would have no chance, just take to the footpath, alleys etc.

There's different levels - I remember seeing a few years ago a race - they were a category of go kart that were powered by a 500cc bike engine with a 6 speed box. Good for 250km/h I think
